Is treatment available for Hepatitis C?
Yes. There are treatments for Hepatitis C. However, these treatments are not right for everyone. Only you and your doctor can decide if a certain treatment is right for you. Currently there are four treatments available that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) • Interferon by itself (called interferon monotherapy) • Interferon combined with ribavirin (called combination therapy) • A pegylated (long-acting) interferon for single use in patients who have never been treated before for hepatitis C. • Ribavirin, which can be given with either standard interferon or pegylated interferon.
